Missy Gators’ opener moved to today at 5

The Vicksburg Missy Gators will start the playoffs a day early.

The team’s Class 5A first-round game against New Hope, originally scheduled for Tuesday, was moved to today at 5 p.m. at Memorial Stadium.

VHS coach Karen Carroll said the switch was made Sunday because of a schedule conflict. New Hope coach Mary Nagy oversees both the girls and boys teams, and the boys play a first-round game Tuesday at Ridgeland.

Cold weather and a chance of snow is forecast for Central Mississippi on Tuesday, but as of this morning no other schedule changes had been announced.

Vicksburg’s boys team will play a first-round game Tuesday at Germantown at 7:15 p.m. Warren Central’s girls and boys will play a Class 6A first-round doubleheader at Madison Central beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Basketball games involving WC, VHS, St. Aloysius and Porters Chapel also had not been affected as of this morning.
